Managed another male card...just!

Hope you are all well on such a wet, cold, dark and blustery night. I like nights like this when I can be inside crafting and can be glad that I'm not outside in it!

I am on a mission to make some men's cards as well as cards for occasions other than just birthdays ready to try sell them for charity and I managed to make this Pink Petticoat card this evening despite finding mens cards hard to make and despite burning my hands and fingers this evening when I very stupidly grabbed, and picked up with both hands, a casserole dish I had just got out the oven! A couple of my fingers are starting to blister even though I ran cold water over them for 10 minutes. Still nothing is going to stop me crafting!

I think the card is lacking something but I don't know what. I want to add ribbons but I know I'll just make it look a bit girly! Maybe three eyelets or buttons in a row bottom right corner but not sure. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know! Thank you!!

Home Sweet Home

I have been looking through the cards I have so far to sell for charity and noticed that most are girly birthday ones so I decided I need to make a few for different occasions. I have made a start with this new home card using Pink Petticoat image coloured in with pencil crayons, gingham card and red textured paper from Craft Central pick and pay, gingham ribbon from Hobbycraft and red buttons from a charity shop (they actually say ripcurl on the other side so designer buttons!!).

Must make some male ones but I find them so difficult to do!

Thanks for looking.
